5 Reasons Why HR Needs To Invest In Employee Pulse Surveys

Work has been challenging for everyone lately.

In particular, employees are having to bear the responsibility of producing consistent results despite the unprecedented turbulence and recent disruptions.

As part of a company’s HR or Management team, you have to check in on them more frequently to assess:

  • their overall welfare and mental health
  • if they feel sufficiently supported across all aspects of their job and
  • if they have the means to succeed, despite working remotely or under unusual conditions.

Most businesses have been doing this through lengthy surveys. Unfortunately, these tend to not be very effective in resolving employee engagement issues.

To bridge this gap between survey results and employee engagement, more companies are now investing in pulse surveys. Here’s what you need to know about pulse surveys and how they can address your business’ needs.

While this is the default option, a Quality of Work Life (QWL) engagement survey offers a much higher and more useful level of insight.

Here’s why conducting a QWL engagement survey can help your business in many ways by learning more about your staff.
